U.S. Trump's visit not mentioned in Queen's speech on government policy

LONDON (Reuters) - There was no mention of a planned visit by U.S. President Donald Trump in the Queen’s speech on Wednesday, when the British monarch set out the government’s programme for the next two years.

Earlier, Britain said there had been no change to plans for Trump to come to Britain on a state visit after local media reported the trip had been postponed. But the date of the trip has never been confirmed.

The previously confirmed state visit by Spain’s King Felipe and Queen Letizia in July was mentioned in her speech.
